1 - 2 weeks availability


This volume makes a vivid and thorough discussion on ethnicity in Africa in terms of history and the management, resolution and prevention of conflicts. The book walks the reader through some examples of ethnic conflicts to prove the universality of ethnic complexities, and cogently advises against any moral and scholarly withdrawal from issues concerning African ethnicity. It also examines efforts ranging from diplomacy, mediation, arbitration, and enforcement to forceful intervention. The discussion commends these efforts but stresses that conflict prevention is the better means of addressing conflict issues in Africa and elsewhere.
